Importance of Cleaning the Headlights on your Car

Headlights are an important part of your car assuring good visibility in nighttime and low light conditions and also allows you to be seen and avoid collisions.

Maintaining the headlights clean will increase your safety and the overall look of your car, according to

Without good lighting and a functional lighting system, you will not be able to drive at night and in bad weather, when is no visibility.

When the car is new the headlights have a lean and bright light but while the years pass being exposed to various agents and weather conditions the top layers of the headlight glass will oxidize, turn yellow or get scratches.

When the light is not as clear or has a yellow tone it means that your headlights are becoming foggy.

Even the thick plastic poly-carbonate compound from which the headlight is made is durable and strong it is sensible to prolonged exposure to UV lights.

The UV light will provoke degradation due to exposure in the superficial layers of the lenses and determine the material to absorb more blue light and emit weak yellow light instead.
